Sony cd-rw crx300e question


I am a cdfreaks newbie. I have a ‘sony cd-rw crx300e’ which will not recognise the fact that I have placed an empty disc in the drive. The drive will acknowledge a disc with something written on it though. Could this be a driver issue. A friend suggested that the empty disc that I am placing in the drive is too fast a speed for the drive to reckognise. Could this be the case?

Would it be best to just invest in a better spec drive? If so, what are the better ones on the market?

BoB :o
